The Adventure Begins

Masking and sponging are a blast.  I made 4 masks for this card, used purple masking tape, post-it notes and patiently sponged this amazing scene.  I'll be using this card as a graduation card but there are plenty of occassions that would fit.  My stamp camp customers really enjoyed seeing the design come to life and seeing  the crisp line when the tape was removed.

Retired Stamp Set:  Up, Up & Away was used to stamp the birds since I can't  even draw a straight line with a ruler.

Hello My Friend

The colors and patterns in the It's My Party Designer Series Paper Stack are so delightful.  Their fun and energizing designs fit any celebration. Using strips of the various schemes will preserve your stash.  You know I'm a paper hoarder so this is very important to me.

Finally & you know it.  I'm listening to Neil Diamond as I write this post:

♫ Hello my friends hello
I just called to let you know
I think about you every night
When I'm here alone
And your there at home
Hello ♫

Happiest of Birthdays

My absolute favorite slice of the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Papers is the focal point of this lovely card.   The design is by Inge Groot, a member of the Stampin' UP! 2015-2016 Artisan Design Team from Bovenkarspel, North Holland (Netherlands).  I take no credit except to admire and share it with my stamping friends.  We made this card at my May Stamp Camp and it was an instant favorite.

All Ye Faithful

What a perfect card to celebrate the true reason of the season.  This was a favorite of my customers.  Not just the card but the stamp set as well.
